The return of the world's most inscrutable secret agent! Pulitzer Prize winner John P. Marquand's creation makes his comics debut. This volume reprints the entire three-issue mini-series.
With the end of World War Two, Ken Takashi is released from an internment camp. Instead of being greated by a culture that should be ashamed of what it did to so many innocent men and women, he finds himself surrounded by bigots, still quick to dehumanize any Asian it comes across. Frustrated, humilliated, and without many options he is met by Mr. Moto. He is there to help Ken, many times-but his motives are his own, and he may show Ken that he has much more to lose than he could ever have dreamed.
96 pages, grey-toned, $10.95.
